v05 and scalp problems

does anyone else get bad scalp problems when using vo5 as a cowash?

I got a few bottles and first time i used them as a cowash it was fine. Then the second time I used it as a cowash, my scalpwas so itchy it burned. I had bad flakes and huge flakes. I even added tea tree oil to them which works for me all the time. Still awful. I thought ok well maybe its my suaves that i use as a leave in. sure enough I shampooed today and used my suave leave ins and my head is fine. needless to say I threw out my v05s and Im going back to my good cowash. oh well

it kinda sucks though cos I wanted to stick to cheap cowashes.

anyone else have any problems with v05?

    This is one of the main reasons why I stopped using this product. I bought the strawberry Moisture Milk and the kiwi lime squeeze conditioner one time. The next day I used it as a co-wash and it smelled straight toxic!! I was coughing in the shower! The trippy part is it wasn't expired!

    I now use SM co-wash and love the results. I have switched to organic products and never looked back!

    yeah i mean im just gonna stick to the conditioner from whole foods. its their line. but its 6 bucks for a huge bottle. its the mint one. I love it and it never gave me problems. vo5 was the worst thing for my hair. weird part is. I use to use it and I had no problem. i dont know why now my scalp hates it.

    Oh wow yes the same with me. I wonder if its exposure to those chemicals overtime that made me have a allergic reaction like that? IDK

    I had even tried using this conditioner as a leave-in from the reviews I saw on here....BIG MISTAKE!! But what works for some doesn't work for everyone.

    But I second the WF Mint conditioner. Its a dream. I am also in love with their grapefruit one. :)

    Now I have noticed using an organic conditioner as a leave-in works wonders and I have no scalp itches or anything. Hmmmm...

    I've used VO5 conditioners for years with no issues at all. But everyone is different so it's possible that your hair/scalp just doesn't like an ingredient or a combo of ingredient in certain conditioners.
